What happens when liquefied watercolor is poured onto a wet surface? What happens when poured onto a dry surface? (Well, you’ll need a really big towel to wipe up the table, and sometimes the floor.) But besides that, astounding, rich and varied backgrounds happen.


We’ll use drawing gum to first mask out a subject. Cattails? The melody from your favorite song? Daisies? Buildings? Then choose your colors, take a deep breath, and see what happens. Skies, mountains, flowers, the possibilities are limitless. It’s a fairly uncontrolled wild process!



It’s a crazy plastic smooth surface. Because you can just lift the paint, it’s almost impossible to make a mistake. The paint floats on the surface and can produce ethereal, delicate colors. Or use less water and generate rich, vibrant colors. The paint can be manipulated almost endlessly allowing shapes to be added or subtracted. Paint with no stress, no pressure. Let’s explore.
